Misty Mountains and Mountain Movers: Using Art and Literature in Teaching About Old and New China.
These learning activities can be used to show secondary level students how contemporary art and literature reflect the main trends of thought and values of the People's Republic of China. Students learn about two of the most important philosophies in old China--Confucianism and Taoism. They also learn about new China (China since 1949). Students read and discuss primary source materials which include materials from the original texts of the "Annalects" and the "Tao Te-Ching" and poetry. Students also critique reproductions of paintings. Discussion questions are interspersed throughout the activities. The publication concludes with an annotated list of suggested resources, a bibliography on art and literature in China, and a listing of the Chinese classics. (Author/RM)
